Kathy Layman Selected for Threads of Hope Award

November 20, 2020 We’re excited to announce that longtime volunteer and current Sunflower Hill Board President, Kathy Layman has been selected to receive Diablo Magazine’s 2020 Threads of Hope Award! The award is given annually to five local volunteers who provide vital services in a variety of fields, and whose “selfless dedication to volunteerism is strengthening the fabric of our community.” Congratulations to Kathy and the other four award winners, who are heroes in our community.

“We’re thrilled that Diablo Magazine has recognized Kathy for her ongoing willingness to devote her time, expertise and energy to Sunflower Hill,” said Edie Nehls, Executive Director of Sunflower Hill. “Kathy’s volunteer efforts have had a profound impact not only for Sunflower Hill, but also the East Bay community, and more specifically, on the lives of hundreds of adults with developmental disabilities.”

Diablo Magazine will be holding a virtual awards ceremony on December 10, 2020 at 5:00PM. This free event featuring Jessica Aguirre, NBC11 News Anchor as Mistress of Ceremonies is open to all. We hope that you will register for the ceremony and join us in celebrating Kathy as she receives this award.
